Club Organised Races

Macclesfield Harriers & A.C. (MH&AC) is a varied club with activity in Track & Field, Road Running, Fell Running and Cross Country. In addition to hosting Track & Field events the club organises several races each year.

The club has a strong belief in supporting the local community and currently donates all net profits (after costs) from each of these races to local charity -  we even openly show our race costings so that participants see exactly where the money goes!. MH&AC is one of the few clubs to do this.

The club races are shown below with links to more detail.

Macclesfield Half Marathon - held on the last Sunday in September with about 800-1000 participants -  a great atmosphere on a rural course

Macclesfield 5K - held on the same day as the Half Marathon

Langley 7 - usually the first Saturday in November (a hilly road race of ~7 miles with great cakes!)

Forest 5 - a hilly trail/fell race around Macclesfield Forest usually held in mid July

Tegg's Nose Fell Race - this race is part of the annual Sheepdog trials

The club also has a 'Club Social Run on Boxing Day each year - a self-handicapping run where the winner is the person who finishes closes to their own predicted time. Look out for deatils on the club website a few weeks before Christmas.

Why not come along to try one of our races!
